Oh Yeah, I Won

Posted by: Avinash on Monday, April 7th, 2008

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I refer you to the Play in CA’s bold declaration. I treaded last place throughout the entire contest, but Kansas and Memphis pulled through for me, saved us from a Hansborough-Love slobberfest, and catapulted my bracket into an impregnable first. Everyone else had UCLA and North Carolina winning, so the lead is mine and will stay mine, regardless of the outcome of the final.

Current results
Bears Necessity-100 (132 possible, only one who can get the final prediction right)
Gossip on Sports-91
The Battle of California-82
The Sports Lounge-80
The Play in California-76
Apples and Moustaches-75

So…this is going to be strange. There’s no way I’m going to be able to generate a week full of posts for this site, for The Play in CA, plus another four posts for four other sites all at once. I’m thinking of doing this in a staggered formation, but I’m not sure how this would work. In the meantime, production here might be a little slower and will probably only get slower as we enter dead season. The idea of guest posters for this site has floated around my mind; I’ll probably set something up for readers to contribute their input.

Anyway I have a bracket for money pool that needs Memphis to win tonight (plus that’d land me another guest spot at the Golden Blogs, which sounds thrilling), so you can tell where my allegiances lie–either I win a load of money and have one more post to write, or lose money and am writing ten more posts at a profit loss. Go Tigers.

EDIT: And now I lost my pool. Blowing a nine point lead with two minutes left in regulation is something special. Even the Kings didn’t pull crap that bad. I despise college basketball, I despise Memphis for not committing a remotely smart foul over the last eight minutes, I despise Derrick Rose for not showing up in overtime, I despise that Roberts dude for not pulling into his free throw motion, I despise Rock Chalk Talk and the entire state of Kansas, I despise myself because I originally had Kansas winning and threw my stock behind the sexy pick with an obvious Achilles’ heel that revealed itself at the most inopportune time.

AND I have seven posts to write about topics I could care less about and no money to compensate me. My loathing knows no bounds.
